Vices & Virtues, dudes. I don't even know. I'm just so freaking happy with it. It's just...damn. It makes me fall in love with them all over again.

I know that some people are probably not going to like it - it's definitely more poppy - but ugh, I just. I love it.

Even though some of it makes me cry and wince and go 'ow'. Seriously. There is simply nothing worse than knowing how it ends. MY CREYS.

This has been a pointless post. Have a cookie.

 Yeah so stealing these from [ profile] xaritomene 

The Works In Progress meme. Open your WIP file and post the names of all your documents, regardless of of how non-descriptive or ridiculous. Feel free to ask about anything and I'll tell you the premise or paste you a tidbit for any of these. HAH.
random titles that probably make no sense )

Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line (or first and second line if it's completely impossible) from the first 30 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing. (instrumentals skipped, obvs.)
Step 3: Strike out the songs when someone guesses both artist and track correctly.
Step 4: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!
Step 5: If you like the game post your own!

lots of lyrics )

Turkey Day

1) Happy Thanksgiving!
You know that thing people do where everyone says what they're thankful for, blah blah blah? Well, I'm thankful for my flist, all you lovely peoples, who still talk to me even though I do silly things like disappear for two months. For everyone who does celebrate it, happy turkey day, and if you're one of the many who doesn't just know you are appreciated ♥

2) Holiday cards!
I like sending them. So if you want one, please let me know! And seriously, even if we don't talk a whole lot, that's still cool.  I will possibly be doing drabbles with the cards (time permitting) so if you want a card please let me know 1) that you want a card, 2) if you want a drabble, and 3) what sort of drabble thingies you'd like. Oh and, what sort of card you'd prefer (like, if a specific holiday, which one). And then PM/email me your postal address, (or if you prefer electronic, your email address).

More... )

Oh, and have you folks seen pinterest yet? It's pretty cool and stuff. Pinning things is way too addicting.

+Tuesday I went kayaking and today I am tan. Sort of. Well, tan for me. You get the idea.

+Big bang undergoing major reworking re: Merlin's character, which is good, but also kind of frustrating because it means my word count is sort of...stagnant.  But it had to be done.

+Wrote a song, sorta, jamming with a friend whilst being incredibly lazy at the park, got home, slept for three hours, woke up and it was stuck in my head so I ended up sitting down and writing it down.  Let's just say it starts with "She held the world on a string/Sitting on a rainbow" and gets progressively more tripping from there :p  I'd put a link to me singing it, only, I can't sing, so it sounds terrible.

++And because I asked for something (and it's definitely a good use of time instead of doing something productive):
The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request ~something~ of any pairing/character of their choosing from me. In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level. If you absolutely can't write, I don't see why you wouldn't be able to offer drawings or icons or something instead.

Fandoms I'm offering
: Merlin, Bandom, Tamora Pierce, Alex Rider, random other fandom you want that I've read/watched

+LASTLY. AM WORKING ON VERY SEKRIT PROJECT FOR MERLIN FANDOM. TO BE REVEALED IN LIKE SEPTEMBER. OR SOMETHING. *nodnod* (*cough* If you approve of awesome projects and would like to, say, be a third mod, lemme know *winning smile*)
ara: (fingersmilies)
Due date: June 28th

Length: At least 12 songs please.

Uploading: single .zip or .rar file with all songs (+ optional art!), preferably uploaded to Mediafire or Megaupload. For those unfamiliar with the uploading process, I will be posting a tutorial within the next week or so - let me know if you'd like me to email/pm you a link to that!

Posting: You can post the mix to your journal/comm and email/pm/comment me the link (prefered option), or you may send me the mix and I will post if for you (as always, my email is araview (at) gmail (dot) com)!

Claiming: Reply to this post with the number of the request you want to claim. I'll strikethrough the ones that are claimed as soon as I can. One person can claim one thing.

Dear flist, lurkers, and random people who may or may not know how they got here:
I want to do a mix exchange. Y/MFHY?

If you want to participate, just leave a comment with an email I can get ahold of you at. If a reasonable number of people are in (i.e. more than two), this thing is on, and I'll be in touch.


(Feel free to pimp this wherever you like. The more people, the better.)

Yay for being back on a stable connection! Boo for being sick! I have this cold/cough thing that is really very annoying. I wish it would go away and leave me alone so I could feel awesome.

I am so very proud cause I finished my [ profile] merlinicons100 claim (Colin Morgan)! See the pretty over on my graphics journal here!!!

Sadness cause I ended up not being able to go to the Cobra Starship concert Friday. sad!panda :( My ass is so broke, guys, so so broke. Interview next saturday, so hopefully that will be fixed in time for Warped this July. But my friend and I did go to Band Night at our old high school. She sang with my bestie's little brother's band, and it was pretty fun. One of the bands was actually really good! They actually have like a myspace: It's pretty cool, but weird cause half the band is friend's younger brothers, lol.

In other news, thank god for the [ profile] reel_merlin draft due date being postponed! Have ~1000 words of Woodstock fic!!! And, the power went out for 9 hours Saturday (snow in May, what the hell upstate NY?!) and I started my FBI!AU fic for [ profile] whizzbangpop. It is accordingly very eerie. I love it! Pirate!AU for [ profile] paperlegends continues to make me giggle like a little girl. Other things go...realised I should probably start my art for [ profile] bandombigbang, since the check in is, uh, in 5 days...yeah.

I finally got stamps, so postcard recipients, they are coming soon to a mailbox near you!

And FYI, I'm changing the layout here soonish, so if you happen to be loading my journal and it's messed up, the change is most likely in progress. Very excited for it - I've been working on my custom sidebars (LJ) and headers (DW) for months now :D

First order of business, Happy Holidays, everyone! I hope Christmas was great for all who celebrate it, and that everyone enjoyed some time off :)

Second, hello and welcome to all my new Merlin friends! I'm so excited to get to know all of you better! That friending meme was nothing short of brilliance :D And as the dog Doug said in Up!: "I just met you, but I love you already!" :p

And third, I have shamelessly stolen a music meme from [ profile] xaritomene. See, I told [ profile] jusmine984 I might do it and she said it'd be cool, and I don't want to disappoint her or anything XD So here it be:

Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line (unless the first line reveals the song title) from the first 25 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing. (House rule: Skip instrumentals.)
Step 3: Strike through the songs when someone guesses both artist and song title correctly.
Step 4: Looking them up on Google is cheating!

(19&21 technically aren't the very first lyrics cause those are dead give aways, but they're right after)
(and, xaritomene, the first song is completely, totally, 100% legit - I couldn't stop laughing at the coincidence :p)

Lyrics!! )
